MAKELEFT

| HOME | BACK |

Purpose

To make a left stereo-mate of an image.  Every pixel in the original image, the calling image, is shift to the right hand side, on the same row with an amount proportional to its elevation difference to a based elevation, specified by the user.  Pixels in the new image where no value was assigned will be filled up by the nearest neighbor method.

The left stereo-mate, and the right stereo-mate generated by function "makeright", are supposed to use for 3D stereoscopic viewing.  They can be printed out as a hardcopies and be viewed under a stereoscope, or can be used in function "anaglyph" to generate an anaglyph image.

Class

Image, Image_flt, Image_int, Image_sht, Image_uch, Image_bln

Usage

{Image_uch} ret  =  object.MAKELEFT({Image_flt} argm1, [{double} argm2, {double} argm3])

argm1 = DEM image

argm2 = height difference interval for an amount of 1 pixel shift

        (default = (Elev max - Elev min) / 4 percents of no of columns)

argm3 = based elevayion

        (default = minimum elevation in the DEM)

Example:

->Img_left = Img.makeleft(DEM)

Purpose

To create a mosaic consisting of several images overlaid on top of each other.  All images must be in the same map projection, and are stored in files as Noobeed format, i.e. each image has one documentation file and one data file.  The last argument in the function indicates whether feathering is performed.  If not, all images are simply spatially overlaid on top of each other.

Class

Image, Image_flt, Image_int, Image_sht, Image_uch, Image_bln

Usage

{void} object.MOSAIC({double} argm1, {VecStr} argm2, [{int} argm3])

OVERLAP

| HOME | BACK |

Purpose

To extract a portion of the original image, the calling image, in an area defined by an overlap area of the original image and another image.  This function does not do any interpolation, or resample, it just simply windows out the overlap portion of the original image.

OVERLAY

Purpose

To reassign new values of the original image, the calling image, according to values of an overlay image. 

The result image will have the same size as the original one, however, its pixel values will get updated to a new value, from the second image, if they also spatially lie within the area coverage of the second image.

Class

Image, Image_flt, Image_int, Image_sht, Image_uch, Image_bln

Usage

For class Image

{Image} ret  =  object.OVERLAP({Image} argm1, [{String} argm2])
